Solemn Red Sox Team Defeats Tribe, 7-2

One day after terrorists attacked our city, our baseball team took the field and brought back a win. Hanging in their dugout was a "617"-numbered uniform, and a touching sign from a young Indians fan (''From our city to your city: Our hearts and prayers go out to you, Boston. Love, Cleveland.'') The Red Sox scored seven times in the second inning and cruised to a 7-2 victory. Mike Napoli knocked in three of the runs on two doubles and Felix Doubront pitched well enough to get his first win of 2013. But the real winners were not at Progressive Field, but everyone 639.8 miles to the east.
